Bar Zia is a nice old wooden bar kind of place. If your lucky enough to get Tracy as a waitress it's even better, super nice and very funny. I would stay away from the pizza unless you like more cheese than Wisconsin exports on top of some bread but otherwise the sandwiches and burgers are good.

Thank Loren K

We went here after our hotel recommended it. We arrived at 5:50 and we were going to an event at the US Bank Stadium at 7:00. We ordered 2 hamburgers and a slice of pizza. After 50 minutes have passed we noticed other people were receiving their food before us that actually arrived after us, then here was a discussion... More

Reasonably priced bar food. Good Happy hour location, a bit of an awkward arrangement of the seating; there are 3 locations to sit. Friendly staff.

Thank you for taking the time to review us. The seating is all versatile to accommodate for our frequent groups. This allows us to pull tables and chairs together. We strive to be a comfortable downtown neighborhood bar. Hope to see you again! More

The East Town neighborhood is noticeably lacking dining options but we are fortunate to have Bar Zia which has a good variety on their menu along with friendly service. The burgers and pizza are both very good.

The staff in the place rock it! It's game day with a couple hundred people in there and the staff is making sure that not a single person goes dry. Nicely done!

It was expensive beers and we were disappointed there was no happy hour before the concert at U.S Bank Stadium

MplsTJ, Manager at Bar Zia, responded to this review

We are competitively priced for downtown Minneapolis (the highest taxed city in the US). We do not offer happy hour during events at the stadium nor do any other bars that we know of during events. This is due to increased cost on the businesses end. For our regular customers we honor our 2-4-1 tokens during events. Our beers are... More

We went here for a business lunch- pretty expensive for what was actually provided. Pretty average food but the potato chips were good. Service was alright.

Went in right before Happy Hour, Bartender was nice and allowed Happy Hour pricing, I attempted to enjoy their decent selection of local Draw beers. Bartender was worth good conversation. They had good eats and decent deals for their happy hour. However the place lacked people... LIttle cold not to much of a warm feeliing. When the manager had gotten... More

Sorry to hear of your experience, being the manager, I have never spat with an employee in front of house. Perhaps you seen an issue take place between two bartenders? It can be our slow time just before happy hour (when a second bartender comes on). I'm glad you were able to take part in happy hour pricing prior to... More

Located a block away from the federal courthouse. This is a great place to unwind, get comfort food, or just have a couple of drinks to wind down the day. Wait staff is tremendously friendly. Comfort food is ok. Full service bar. Limited wine selection. Good beer selection. All in all, a really good respite from the federal courthouse after... More
